Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport Operations Center

Anchorage, Alaska

Maintenance at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport was spread throughout the airport in structures built in the 1950s. Many shops were isolated,  such as the carpentry and fabrication shops, which were nearly a mile from the areas they served. Sprawling, inefficient configuration of the operations compromised emergency response times and hampered communication.

As part of a terminal expansion project, Maintenance Design Group programmed and designed a consolidated operations center. This design included new shared spaces such as conference rooms, supply/copy rooms, break and training spaces, reception areas, public restrooms, and ancillary spaces which reduced the overall space requirement and decreased the cost of the new facility.

Unfortunately, budget cuts prevented the project from moving forward. The design allows quick, efficient communication between departments co-located with shops designed around their function, and allows efficient operation of all the maintenance required for optimal airport operations.

Project Highlights
• All emergency operations and communications are designed to be located in the operations center, resulting in greater emergency response time.
• New design provides secure access to the terminals.
